Not All Body Shops are Created Equal

Cost and location aren't the only things you should consider when looking for a repair shop after you've been in an accident. Your type of vehicle, the shop’s training and credentials are all other factors that should be considered. BodyShopology works with key partners to give you this information with the click of a button. Use our shop locator to compare and select the body shop that fits your vehicle and your repair needs.

Know Your Vehicle

Today’s vehicles are complex. They have new age materials and electronics that make each of them unique leading to specific repair procedures for every vehicle.

It's more important than ever for a repair shop to have experience in repairing your specific vehicle. Our body shop locator, provides insight into a shops capabilities when it comes to repairing certain vehicle makes.

But, you should also consider asking the right questions upfront to gather further information on a shop's capabilities as it relates to your specific vehicle. Check-out our recommended questions on our blog.

What to Ask Your Body Shop

Finding a Trained Body Shop Matters

Knowing your vehicle is the first step in a proper repair, but understanding your shops training history is just as important. Did you know that there are no government regulations or licenses needed to repair a vehicle? So, this means that your hair cut was done by a licensed professional, but the car you just picked up from the repair shop with your family may not be. Our locator makes finding a body shop with trained and educated technicians easy, allowing you to get back on the road safely.
